Christopher Beorkrem, "Material Strategies in Digital Fabrication"
English | 2012 | ISBN: 0415533643, 041553366X | PDF | pages: 224 | 82,2 mb


Author Christopher Beorkrem shows how material performance drives the digital fabrication process and determines technique. He has recreated and dissected thirty-six of the most progressive works of architecture of the last few years, with perspectives from the designers so that you can learn from the successes and failures of each project. Including step-by-step diagrams and using consistent language and the simplest construction techniques, he identifies the important characteristics of each material, including connection types, relative costs, deformation, color, texture, finish, dimensional properties, durability, and weathering and waterproofing to link the design outcomes to form. The book is divided into five parts by material “ wood, metal, concrete, hybrids, and recycled “ to help you reference construction techniques for the fabrication machines you have on-hand.
